The app follows the book exactly, from what I can tell. They really forced the rhyming and have phrases which wouldn't make any sense to a child like "I get my kicks" (so that we'd have a rhyme against pick-up-sticks).
In case you haven't read any new Berenstain Bears books lately, they've signed a deal with Zonderkidz (a division of Zondervan). Now the books talk about praying, God, and Jesus. That's right- you can also find God Loves You, Say Their Prayers, and Go to Sunday School. Be sure to get the iPhone app, hardcover book, and Kindle edition also!
It doesn't look like any of the Berenstain Bear apps on the market aren't this Christian flavor. If you're part of the 25% of the US population which doesn't have Jesus in their heart, skip these apps. At least there's 3 modes in the Oceanhouse Media framework- I can just make up my own words. I should have gone with Dr. Seuess- if Zonderkidz gets ahold of his work, I'm calling a Jihad!
